Question: Thank you for your answers. I am still working on the problem. I still have constant pain. I am taking turmeric and curamin, hot & cold, massage, tens unit, exercise. It also hurts down the left side of my throat. They still feel that it is just arthritis so I am going to see a reflexologist on Tuesday. Hopefully I will receive intermittent lack of pain. Appreciate your help. Thank you.

I don't have a cold or a sore throat from that. I find it hard to believe that this is all caused from arthritis in the neck. Thank you for your reply.
